Hide cabinet screwholes

When you screw two cupboards together, there’s an easy way to hide the screw holes. Find where the hinge plates for the cupboard doors will be attached. Drill a hole in the middle of these areas and drive in your joining screws. Then install the hinge plates over the top.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Attach the sides of the oven cabinet to the base panel
2 Attach the top rails to the oven cabinet
3 Attach the plastic feet to the bottom of the kitchen cabinet
4 Adjust the height of the cabinet feet
  • Step 1. Attach the sides of the oven cabinet to the base panel

    Put the first side panel into place and line up the pre-drilled holes. Use an impact driver to gently drive the screws into place. When the first side is on, turn the cabinet over and do the same on the other side. Check to see if the joining edges have properly lined up. If not, tap them lightly into place with a rubber mallet and then tighten the screws.
  • Step 2. Attach the top rails to the oven cabinet

    Put the first top rail into position. Push all four screws into position with your thumb to temporarily hold the rail in place. Then drive the screws in and use the rubber mallet again to tap the edges into place before giving the screws a final tighten. Now repeat this process for the second rail.
  • Step 3. Attach the plastic feet to the bottom of the kitchen cabinet

    The plastic feet for your kitchen cabinets come in four parts – base plate, tube, screw thread and foot. Attach the base plate to the base of the cabinet, using the predrilled holes and the short screws. Push the tubes into the base plates and the feet onto the screw threads. Then drive the screw threads into the tubes.
  • Step 4. Adjust the height of the cabinet feet

    You can adjust the height of your feet by screwing the threads in or out. This is very useful if your floor isn’t level. Use a combination square to help set the height of all the feet at 145mm. Then put the cabinet in place and adjust the feet if you need to level it up on an uneven floor.
